Nice to hear that.  I have yet to test it.

Btw, keep in mind the upcoming switch to gpt labels.  Once disks become
larger than 2 TiB, msdos labels aren't usable, and D-I automatically uses
gpt to partition the drive.

You can simulate this by running D-I in expert mode (it will ask which
disk label to use), or by creating a virtual disk larger than 2 TiB (qcow
image files can represent a disk that's larger than your filesystem).
